In this interview Mary is joined by her friend Kelly Uchima (@kellyu) to have a deep conversation about recovering from anorexia, addiction, binge eating, codependency, and toxic relationships. Kelly is also Asian American, so she shares the nuances of growing up with body-image struggles while being a person of color.
You will learn…
the warning signs and red flags of toxic relationships (we’re talking like, narcisstic abuse)
why you can get addicted to pretty much anything (and how to break free)
what perfectionism, eating disorders, addiction, and toxic relationships all have in common…
This is a rich, raw, and real conversation filled with true vulnerability and authentic storytelling. Please make sure to let us know how you like it by tagging @maryspodcast and @kellyu in your IG stories!
